The release-mode dial and setting buttons are oddly unchanged from the D300s. However, the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are obvious updates.

The D500's design looks like a cross between the D300s and the D5, albeit with differences attributable to the variations in features.

The connectors are the same as the D5 -- USB 3, HDMI, microphone and headphone jack -- with the exception of the Ethernet port that occupies the top left on the D5.

The D500 will come in a kit with the 16-80mm f2.8-4 lens that was announced earlier this year.

The D500 comes with a full complement of hardware connectivity options, including NFC. The camera offers an XQD and a CompactFlash card slot.

The D500 has the same control layout on the grip as the D5.
